A Broad-tailed Hummingbird almost frozen at of a second. Even at those speeds I still got a tiny bit of movement on the wings and could not truly freeze the bird in mid air. The speed at which these birds move is something I still marvel at.
Hummingbird Wings Move Differently than Birds. When they hover, hummingbirds move their wings more like a buzzing insect than a flapping bird. But, unlike tiny insects, hummingbirds are large enough to stir up the air more violently as they move. Now scientists have attempted to model exactly how hummingbird wings interact with the air as they hover.
